Celebrate Young Creatives

Soul Sonshine has an initiative to positively impact children by recognizing and applauding their accomplishments. To that end, we are undertaking an initiative called “Celebrate Young Creatives” to publish a book (or series of books) featuring the poems, stories, and artwork of students from preschool through grade 12.

We know that all kids have a seed of creativity. We want to cultivate that potential before it withers away. Our application and rules explain the initiative more fully.

We look forward to seeing your offspring’s works!

Curiosity and Encouragement Change the World

What child can thrive without curiosity and encouragement?

Long before children can read and fully understand these words, they experience them and will readily understand from the book’s storyline what these concepts mean.

Curiosity and Encouragement are cats. Curiosity is different from other cats and wants to change the world. He tries and fails, but then Encouragement shows up. With the help of Encouragement, the path to making the world a better place becomes clear.

About the Author

Curiosity and Encouragement Change the World is the first book in the Passionate Epic Tales (PET) series, written and illustrated by Steven Eurioste, an illustrator-turned-author. Steven hopes to inspire love in the world with his story. He wrote and illustrated this book during his darkest hours, and with the book’s birth, hope has emerged. Curiosity is modeled after Milo, who doesn’t want to change the world, but he is always curious. Steven’s next book will be out soon, with many more books to follow.

Wheels of Injustice:
Saving My Child from the Child Savers

 by Susan Louise Gabriel

Six weeks into a blissful honeymoon, life turns into a nightmare when Susan’s 9-year-old daughter is taken away and her husband is falsely accused of child sexual abuse.

Dragged under the churning wheels of the child protection system, Susan is given a choice: cooperate in prosecuting her innocent husband or lose her daughter. When the couple doesn’t give in to pressure, Susan loses custody of her daughter, and her husband is charged with a felony that carries a 16-year prison sentence.

Wheels of Injustice is a curtains-pulled-back true account of the out-of-control child protection system of the 1980s and the victims who risked everything to expose its egregiously unjust acts and reform it.

 About the author —

Susan and her husband live with their dogs in the country outside a small town in Texas. Susan is the CEO of Soul Sonshine, LLC, a Christian publishing company that seeks to inspire others and help authors give their books a shining start.
